Originally, I had planned on running the 5K event on the last weekend in January. When I received news of the diagnosis, it immediately hit home, not only did I think of Adam as a brother, but having a very close relationship to my own brother, I could only imagine the impact it was having on his family. Adam has just completed his second of six to eight chemo treatments this past week and remains in great spirits.
I am a mom, I work two jobs, and lately, I have had the majoirty of my days not end until 7 p.m. at night. Was I crazy for trying to take on fundraising and training for a marathon in addition to all of this? After a long discussion with the hubby, we knew it was the right thing to do. I showed up to sign-up on the very first day of training, almost a month after the rest of the participants.
